    ... and I love it :D

    I've got a couple of real noobie questions though:

    - When browsing the web, is there any way that I can maximise the browser to fill the full screen? Currently, clicking on the green button maximises the browser to about 90% of the screen

    - How do I access the software for the webcam? So if for example, I just want to use it to take a random picture, what do I do?

    Thanks loads for your help!

    The green button makes the window as wide as it needs to be, any wider and it would just be white space. To manual enlarge the window click on the bottom right corner and drag.

    For taking pics with the webcam: Photobooth

    Thanks swiftaw - I've got one more (and I feel a complete muppet asking it!), but I can't quite figure out how the power figure of 8 lead connects to the power adaptor in order to charge the Macbook up.

    One other thing - when I load up Photobooth, I'm just greeted with a black screen, where I'm guessing the camera image should be.

    Do I need to turn the camera on first or something?

    The camera should turn on automatically after a few seconds.

    As for the power cord. Look at the power brick, the bit with the prongs pulls off to be replaced by the end of the power cord.
